Links to Reads: November 2015

Fruit sale in Baku | AZ Cookbook

I took this picture in Baku in October. It is typical to see fruits and vegetables selling out of a car trunk in some of the city’s neighborhoods. This car came to ours and we were quick to load on succulent pomegranates and sweet quince. And the price? Oh, my! 2 pounds for about $1. What’s not to love?

Another round of Links to Reads here! Hello, December! Good bye, November.

What did I do this past month? Was busy with finding ways to distribute “Pomegranates & Saffron” via various channels, among a myriad of other things. The book is now available on Amazon (free shipping you guys!). If you are outside of the U.S., you can purchase it from AZ Cookbook store.

If you are looking for a holiday gift for your friends and family, I hope you consider my “humble” book. It is promising to make the recipients happy.
